Is that allowed? Does anyone else feel that way? ... That we're missing out on something? No, not talking 'bout the big party, with streamers and goofy hats and noisemakers, but rather missing out on welcoming the new year with someone very close to you, both in person and in spirit ... Someone with that hand-in-glove intimate kinship, one of both mind and body .... I don't want to buy into all the societal pressures of the traditional "have-to-do-it-this-way" NYE, but nonetheless you only get so many NYEs in your life, and it is a shame to spend too many of them alone ...There is an emptiness to that, I think ... And I know God understands, but for us humans, who do live in this human world at this moment, it is a tough time to be solo .... So, yes, if I can be honest, I find it a sad time tonite ...

Anyone else care to share?....

Richard we can't help our feelings they just are and yes many people are said/depressed, etc. on New Year's Eve, myself included in past years but I have learned to take action when I get like this. I just came back from sitting before the Blessed Sacrament, realizing the greatest love of all is the love He gives us and askng Him to help me understand this and to see this in others. We are never alone, as God is always there.

Yes sad but reflecting. ABC just showed Neil Diamond singing Solitary Man from 1966...one of my favorites.

I remember attending NYE at a friend's in Cleveland 12/31/69. I had no date and was sitting on the right-end of a big couch. At 3:45am, a devout Catholic RN sat on the right-edge of the couch, and told me her date was taking her home, but she'd be back. She was 45 minutes later. The party ended at 6:10am and quite a bit of snow fell during the party.

She was a good woman, and dummy Bob didn't chase her. Maybe I'll get other chances w/ another good woman in 2013.

Also thinking of all the people, celebrities, Newton CT, and others we lost in 2012.

cookie For the third time tonight I want to bake some cookies for someone.

Life is too short not to live in the moment and be happy and grateful for all that you have, never think for a moment you are all alone in this one and you know what?!

You should go out anyway, live life and live it LARGE. You just might find another soul with no date to dance to James Taylor's How sweet it is..."I want to stop...and thank you baby..."

Since you are not right down the street for me to come drag you out of your funk then my prayer for you is that you have a most Blessed and Bright New Year!!!

Neil Diamond is on right now lovestruck!
